The Mentalist. TV series. Ten good reasons to see season 5
-The protagonist, Patrick Jane (Simon Baker), is a disturbing character, full of problems and (of course, this is the good point) charms. In my point of view, Patrick Jane can only be compared with Sherlock Holmes. The show was created by Bruno Heller. Congratulations, Bruno.
-Patrick Jane has an enigmatic enemy, Red John. He killed Patrick’s wife and daughter in a cruel way and he keeps on threatening Patrick. Previously, Patrick Jane was a psychic and now, he is a consultant to the fictional California Bureau of Investigation (CBI). However, he uses the highly developed observational skills, he previously employed, to “read” peoples’ minds in the police investigations. This detail makes The Mentalist a different police procedural TV series.
-Simon Baker is one of the sexiest actors of a TV series.
-On March 14, 2012, CBS announced that The Mentalist was renewed for a fifth season, which premiered on September 30, 2012. Something will have a TV series which has lasted so much!
-Teresa Lisbon (Robin Tunney), a senior agent and Patrick’s boss, is the perfect couple of Patrick. She is so professional and sensible!
-One of the best characters is Wayne Rigsby (Owain Yeoman). He is a big man and an arson specialist but he is also so shy!… He is lovely!
-The luxurious houses of the series are worthwhile.
-The Mentalist is mostly filmed within the studio zone in Los Angeles County, what is a synonym of perfection.
-Good jokes and ironies.
Definitely, Patrick Jane unconventional and often absolute illegal methods (hypnosis) are amusing as well as the problems he causes to Teresa Lisbon and to the rest of the team. He is a blessing resolving cases and a curse at the same time. Meanwhile, the hunt for Red John continues…
